This year’s Softworld HR & Payroll Annual Forum will provide a unique showcase for the latest products and services aimed at the HR and payroll function. The 15 key exhibitors will assemble at the NEC, Birmingham from the 17 – 18 October to boast their latest offerings covering e-HR, ASP and payroll management solutions, to name but a few.

The event is unique in the fact that the exhibition is capped to a maximum of 15 key players, all of which have the same size stand, ensuring that the focus of the event is on the high quality product offerings, rather than the size and scale of the stands. Key players confirmed at this stage include SOS Software, Chrystal HRS, Prolog4, Frontier Software, Snowdrop Systems, Rebus HR, Northgate Information Solutions and Microsoft Great Plains. This year’s event will run alongside Softworld Accounting and Finance, also taking place in Hall 20, which will feature over 100 leading software and e-Business solution providers and over 50 new product launches.
